John Galt
Rothelan A Romance of the English Histories In Three Volumes
Edinburgh: Oliver and Boyd, 1824. First edition. Fine Binding. Very Good Indeed. 6.5" by 4". None. An attractively bound first edition of this novel by Scottish author John Galt. Galt's novels are best known for their depiction of Scottish rural life, tinged with ironic humour. He is also credited with the first known usage of the word, 'utilitarian', first used in The Annals of the Parish. During his lifetime, Galt's works elicited a largely positive and sustained critical interest. Such figures as Lord Byron, Sir Walter Scott, and Samuel Taylor Coleridge admired his writing and ensured his popularity until his death. Complete in three volumes. Rebound in half-calf bindings. Externally smart, with some minor shelfwear only. Internally, firmly bound. Ink signatures to half-titles. Pages have some tidemarks and some scattered foxing throughout. Alight loss to the final page of volume II, not affecting the text. GOOD ONLY interior. Very Good Indeed
Bookseller: Rooke Books PBFA [Bath, United Kingdom]
